Invest in Black Founders - Netcapital Demo Day Thursday

Orange County investors of all levels are invited to meet five inspiring black founders leading innovative companies.

All of these companies are currently raising capital and anyone, even you, can invest for as little as $100.

Netcapital is hosting a Virtual Demo Day on Thursday, June 11, 2020 at 500 PM PDT highlighting five black founders that are currently raising capital on the site.  Attendance is free. Black Founders Demo Day

Presenting companies are:

  • Deuce Drone - drone delivery for businesses
  • Watch Party - content discovery with your friends
  • ecoText - digital textbook subscription for college students
  • Charles & Company - luxury tea supplier with multiple verticals
  • Dome Audio - innovative new headphones

These last few weeks have emphasized the need to support and amplify the black entrepreneurs community.

NetCapital doesn't know if this is the perfect way to support, but they feel compelled to do something. It is important to support black-owned businesses, help build wealth in the black community, and support diversity in the startup ecosystem.

“We gotta stop positioning investing in black founders as “help”, and start positioning it as investing in the future of tech. We don’t want HELP, we want you to recognize that our ideas have the potential to be as influential as our music and culture.”
- Albrey Brown, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Airtable

It is important to understand that anyone, including you, can invest in these companies.

Hopefully you will be inspired by seeing world-changing black excellence.
